Today is mine and my husband's anniversary. However, since it's Monday, he had to work, my eldest daughter had to go to school and my youngest daughter and I played chauffeur and errand girls. So, my husband and I had our anniversary time out yesterday.
We dropped our daughters off with their great aunt and we went out to a very nice brunch and a movie. Expensive meals are not something we do in our family so the brunch we had yesterday was an amazing treat! Oh, and did I mention that my husband made the reservation and planned the babysitting? Yeah, that was a treat in itself. And, he did this two weeks ago.
Anyway, the brunch was a four course deal and included champagne. Normally, I can't have more than a couple of sips of champagne without acquiring a headache. Yesterday, I had three glasses and all I felt was giddy and happy. Our brunch began with a bowl of fresh canteloupe and berries, followed by shrimp chowder which was to-die-for. Then we had the main course (beautiful pics below) and an apple tart topped with vanilla mousse for dessert. I am still thinking about how amazingly delicious the brunch was.
The company of my husband, the delicious food and exemplary champagne was set off by a jaw dropping view of the Pacific Ocean. I felt spoiled and completely loved. Well, I always feel loved but the spoiled was a great treat yesterday.
After brunch we walked on the beach and then went to the movies. We saw Get Him to the Greek. It was a really funny movie that had some serious parts to it, as well. I'd definitely recommend the movie.
And now, for the pictures:
My husbands filet mignon, yukon gold potatos, scrambled eggs topped with tomatos and green beans.
My seafood salad that had lobster, shrimp, scallops and a vinigarette dressing.
